In the quiet….

It’s no secret that I don’t love snow.

But the occasional early morning, when I have no place to go and coffee at hand, I can enjoy the view from my windows. There is also a certain quiet after the snow falls. It is a different sort of quiet, like the whole world is standing still, and holding it’s breath.

It is beautiful. God covers the world in white and reminds me that all things can be made clean and new.

I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all of you who shopped through my links this weekend. Your support means the world to me. As of yesterday, my blog has been around for 13 years! Crazy. Every year at this time, I ask myself, do I start deleting things? Or continue to pay the bill for all the web storage I use? Your support made that an easy decision this year.

In case you are still in the shopping mood, both Accuquilt and Fat Quarter Shop have extended their Cyber Monday deals through midnight tonight. Connecting Threads has their sale continuing through December 1st.

Have a great day!

November Wrap Up

This month has been crazier than usual, but I squeezed in a few small finishes.

Yep, small indeed! I did finish my Mourning Has Broken quilt also. I’ll share that soon. It looks like I haven’t done much sewing. I actually have, but not much that I can share just yet. I’ve got a number of projects in the works for Accuquilt that I can’t wait to show you!

Have a great day!

Cyber Monday This and That

Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful recent comments! You are all so sweet! Once again, my readers have provided the perfect quilt name. My purple quilt shall be called, Mourning Has Broken! A little play on the song title and the reproduction mourning prints. It feels perfect!

And I found the perfect binding fabric in my stash!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We sure did! There is nothing like time spent with family. E1 spent the night on Friday, and E2 stayed Saturday night. Today, E3 is coming.

I really hate shopping, but if I can do it from my couch? Then I’m all in! I’ll be doing a bit of shopping online this morning with my coffee. Here are a few links in case you didn’t have time to shop over the weekend.

First off, the Accuquilt deals continue!

Next, Fat Quarter Shop continues with more Flash Sales and lots of other great deals!

Slow Stitching Sunday

Mr. Wonderful and I flew into Michigan early Thursday. Those red eye flights are rough! But after a quick nap, we enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at Daughter #2’s house. Friday, we had a family day here. We sure missed our Michigan kids!

I snuck in a little quilting time yesterday. Today, I’ll get the binding done on this. I have severe options.

The first makes for too much black. The second is too pink. I’m sure I can find something.

Michigan welcomed us with snow.

Yikes! It’s cold!

Have a great day!

More Purple

I really need to come up with a name for this! I finished all my blocks.

I thought I would add sashing and cornerstones.

But decided to go with alternate plain blocks. I wish I had a bolt of this gray fabric. It’s so useful!

Stay tuned.

I don’t use purple often, but I had some purple and black scraps and I got an idea. I used these Accuquilt dies from my 8” Qube.

I already had most of the triangles that I needed in my triangle bin.

I love how accurate these dies are, just leave a wee bit showing at the corners….

….on both sides and press toward the triangles.

Now look what happens when I add the next triangle.

That perfect alignment leads to this.

So far so good!

Have a great day!

This and That

I visited 35th Avenue Sewing World last week. I loved these two samples, they had displayed!

Grand dog, Bambi, likes to help me sew.

We put up our tree and the dogs are loving it!

Our neighbors are really into the spirit!

If you are in need of a crunchy snack, these are dangerously good!

If anyone in the Phoenix area is looking for a Bernina 1030 or a Bernina serger, I’m selling both of these.

Lastly, a huge thanks to everyone for sharing your thoughts in EQ8. I took the plunge and so far, it seems much more user friendly!

Have a great day!
